Polkadot Decoded, the annual conference for the global Polkadot community, will happen on June 29th and 30th in four global cities. The global Polkadot community is excited about the event, and it promises to be engaging and informative.
The event will also have many side events, as well as a rolling live stream that anyone can watch. More than 100 speakers are scheduled to participate, and numerous topics will be covered at the four locations.
Polkadot Decoded Delivers NFTs
Polkadot Decoded is almost full, but anyone who is interested can register online by clicking here. Official sponsors Web3 Foundation and Parity Technologies urge anyone that wants to attend to register now – and not miss out on this event.
In addition to lots of interesting information, 50,000 attendees will be given a special NFT to commemorate their attendance. The four locations for the summit are Berlin, New York, Buenos Aires and Hangzhou.
The NFT that will be given is interesting. Once an attendee logs on to the event, they will see their NFT change. In addition, they will be able to access lots of valuable information at the global summit.
Bertrand Perez, CEO of Web3 Foundation, commented,
“We value our supporters across the world and encourage the local Polkadot communities in all countries to organize their own events…These events could include social gatherings, panels and networking events. Or you could consider hosting an event to allow people to gather together to watch the live streamed talks…With such a huge volume of talks scheduled, covering every aspect of the Polkadot and Kusama ecosystems – and with many of their respective parachain teams featured – there really is something for everyone.”
A Great Opportunity
While Buenos Aires is the main location for Polkadot Decoded in Latin America, there will be a big party happening in Mexico City. For anyone that wants to attend in Buenos Aires, the summit will be happening in the C Complejo Art Media center, in the Chacarita district.
In Buenos Aires, most of the content will be presented in Spanish, which will be great for anyone that wants to participate and needs Spanish content to do so. In addition, some other local communities have won the right to host side events, which was accomplished via an on-chain voting process.
Some unofficial events are also planned, and anyone that wants to can watch the live streams at an official, or unofficial side event.
This will be the first Polkadot Decoded to have live participation, as the first two were limited to online participation, due to lockdowns or other COVID19 measures that crippled the global economy.
Dr. Gavin Wood Will Speak!
The founder of Polkadot, Dr. Gavin Wood, is slated to speak at both the New York event, as well as the event in Buenos Aires. He is responsible for making Polkadot a reality, and his insights are valuable.
The Polkadot parachain Moonbeam will be in charge of the New York event. The team at Moonbeam has crafted a wonderful two-day program that will be held at Webster Hall, a venue in the East Village of Manhattan.
In addition to Dr. Wood, New York attendees will get to listen to the ideas of Adam Carver of Bitgreen, Manta Network, Parallel Finance, Acala and Equilibrium, and Shawn Tabrizi of Parity.
At the moment, most of the locations have reached near capacity, so if you are interested in attending, now is the time to sign-up.
The popularity of Polkadot is growing, and the interest in Polkadot Decoded shows that people want to learn more about the entire Polkadot ecosystem. While token prices have fallen, the decentralized development environment is alive and well!
